4:30 pm
hello, troutman. we've got great videos, "right this minute." the face of despair. as rescuers try to free a boy -- >> caught in the concrete railing of a government building. >> see the delicate operation to break the brick without breaking his head. a big rig hits another truck that starts leaking. >> that's liquefied petroleum
4:31 pm
gas. >> translation, that thing's gonna wuburn. >> it happens within seconds. this little guy has had surgery after surgery. >> and he's only four months old. >> we've got the amazing story of reno, the miracle colt. and ufo sighting that has people asking -- >> are we alone in the universe? >> let the doubting begin. >> this could be a flashlight that someone is shining on the wall in a dark room. a risky rescue of a child was all caught on camera in china. russia today has footage of a little boy with his head caught in the concrete railing of a government building in china, and his face is terrified. >> was it one of those situations where the kid was just playing around and stuck his head in there? >> they don't quite know how the little boy got his head stuck. as you can see, emergency workers were called to the scene. the guys you see in the orange jackets are firefighters.
4:32 pm
when they first arrived at the beginning of this video, you see them trying to push the boy's head through. you see them trying to maneuver the boy. you can tell from this shot behind the little boy's body that he's wedged in there pretty well. >> they got like the jaws of life out to crack open this thing? >> according to reports, this was a set of hydraulic pliers that they used to separate the concrete barrier. and of course this was incredibly dangerous for this boy so they tried to block his head, block his body as best they could from any kind of falling debris from this process. you can only imagine what the sound of that did to this little boy who was already terrified. >> you've got to think about how uncomfortable he was in that position, let alone scared. but crouching down with your head stuck in that little space for so long, your body has got to start to react in weird ways and then everybody is just looking and watching what's going on, the humiliation of that too. >> watch here at the end, the little boy is freed. and look at his face.
4:33 pm
>> he's just got tears. >> but he walks over to the loving arms of his grandmother, and that makes everything better. >> happy ending to this story. this sweet black lab is known as mr. jack. he's a blind lab, but he is being treated by a vet because someone based on these x-rays shot him with air rifles lodging about 12 pellets in his body. >> look at him. >> you can tell he's in pain. abc 7 news in denver talked to the owner, john dukeman. >> whoever did this set up and used my dog for target practice. >> what is wrong with people that they would do this to this poor defenseless little guy. he's obviously an older dog. he's got a little gray face. >> old or not, any dog you don't do this with. that's sglashl you cterrible. >> you can see where the pellets were and the vet believes he had been shot at least once a day
4:34 pm
over several days. it has been really expensive because he's already paid more than $1,000 on the treatment for mr. jack. they are still looking for the person who's responsible for this. >> if people donated a couple of bucks -- >> get enough people to donate a dollar and they'd be tiebl pably for all of his medical bills. >> this is really heart breaking. they were able to remove one of the pellets and they still have 11 pellets to get out. >> it's okay. guys, i've got some really graphic video coming out of china. take a look at the very top of your screen. you see a truck rear-end another smaller vehicle and stuff spills out all over. that's liquefied petroleum gas that spilled out of that smaller blue truck. and it erupts in flames. >> oh, no. oh, no. >> wow. the man who was driving the larger truck behind was trapped inside the cab as this thing went up in flames and did get
4:35 pm
out of the cab, but died later from burns he received inside the truck. >> oh, oh, oh, that's awful. >> it happened within seconds. it was impact and the next thing you know there's a trail of fire. >> you see the liquid spill out. and it doesn't erupt immediately, but you're right, just seconds later this minor rear-end accident turned deadly. >> of all the things to run into, to run into that with that flammable stuff in the back of that truck, and then get trapped in your own vehicle. oh, my goodness. reno is a miracle colt. he's only four months old, but when you hear what he's been through, you're going to agree with me. you can see reno here looks happy, healthy, loves gatorade. as you can see right there. but reno has been through some serious surgery. at two months old, reno had major brain surgery to remove bone shards. then later had kidney failure
4:36 pm
and a ruptured bladder which also had to be operated on. reno's owner jody bratton talked to kutv about her special horse. >> i had to lie him down, split him open like a jigsaw puzzle. i saw several that came in a whole lot healthier with better odds than reno and i sat there with them while they cried. i had to leave icu so they could put their horses to sleep. >> so reno was in the hospital about 31 days after that last surgery, but as you can see now, reno is alive and doing well today. >> that's a lot for an animal to go through. >> the surgeries were performed at texas a&m university. we have dr. keith chafin right this minute to tell us about it. >> how did this happen? >> there was suspicion that perhaps the mare, the foal's mother, may have kicked him in the head but there's no evidence to support or refute that. >> were you guys able to learn
4:37 pm
anything from this case with reno? >> absolutely. in our hospital we've had mri imaging and cat scan imaging available for many years for small animals, like dogs and cats. only since last september do we have those capabilities available for large animals. this technology opens a lot of doors for the advancement of patient care for horses and large animals of any type. >> i know reno has only been home a month, but hisfuture,e can beiky th norl horse? >> time will tell, but at this point in time we are optimistic that reno may be a very normal horse. what do we have here? >> eight people on one motorbike, my friends. >> that ain't no easy rider. see how it's done. and what happens when you stab a tire full of air?
